In this climate brick steps can deteriorate quickly due to temperature changes and use of the wrong snow melt product. Bricks will expand and contract with the weather causing the mortar or cement to crack under the pressure. This can also happen due to settlement or moisture.
To eliminate this problem a cast stone stair kit can be installed. The 6-inch treads are sold in bluestone or chestnut and are available in 48” and 72” lengths. The pieces can be purchased separately or as a pre-packaged kit that contains ten pieces of cast stone that would do a four-step staircase.
No more brick repairs!
